One of my roomates and frequent show companions is now a lawyer with a big firm in D.C.. His specialty is Liquour laws. I see him occaisionally when he is a keynote speaker at microbrewery conventions. That is one hell of a gig.

that would be the best lawyer gig aside from law professor (which is the best job in the world). makes tax litigation actually sound boring (if you can believe that!)

One of his clients runs a microbrewery in Savannah (one of my favorite places in the Southeast) and when I was there visiting my son (he was orginally posted at Fort. Stewart just outside of Savannah, played some golf at Sea Island) he hooked me up with this guy. Got a full weekend of free home-brew and amazing food. Imagine getting that treatment in just about every city across the country? Almost enought to make me take the LSAT, but too old now. Damn!

Never too old. There was a guy in my Contracts course who was 46 when we started, and he practices now. Although I dont know how he did the first year with a wife and kids, etc. Taht would be just about awful.

I graduated from law school at 37 - starting at 34. Hardly ancient, but I was older than anyone else in the class (by at least a half dozen years) The downside is big firms know they can't sucker you - or mold your mind to their vision. Cest la vie.

Thanks all for the encouragement, but I'm fairly happy where I am. I get to go home at night knowing that in some small way what I did that day helped someone feel a little better. The pay aint great, but the bills are paid and I get to travel a little.

Give me a break! I can't even count the number of blue collar Right wingers who's ONLY reason their lazy a**'s have anything is because they're in a union. The principles of were brought about by LIBERALS.

I am So tired of the word liberal being bastardized. It's from the latin root for BOOK and it's orgins are in one who is educated which education tends to usually bring about an open mind.
